Hey, @aphyr ! How did you learn distributed systems?

More importantly, how can I learn them without spending another 4 years at University?

@astraluma kinda gradual--I spent about 10 years building 'em and fighting fires in prod, and another 7 testing them. Lotta papers throughout.

@astraluma I actually have a whole repo (distsys-class) for a crash course I teach on this stuff, and the outline is free for everyone. Lots of resources there.

@aphyr Thanks!!

(I've got a couple of distributed computing projects in mind, but there definitely feels like "you must be this trained" bar.)
